Daily Change

What is the daily change?

The daily change represents the fluctuation of any given security over the course of a trading session. It is measured very simply by comparing the price of the security at the end of a trading session to its closing price at the end of the previous session.

How does one use the daily change?

The importance of the daily change is quite straightforward.

  • It enables traders to track how much money they have earned or lost during a day’s trading.
  • It is used, together with the daily changes of previous and subsequent days to determine long-range trends of the security, thus providing traders with an excellent technical analysis tool for building trading strategies.
